Dropfiles: OneDrive Integration

1. Microsoft OneDrive Application

The OneDrive is integrated in the main Dropfiles package.
First, you need a Microsoft Azure App to connect your website to a OneDrive account. Go to: https://portal.azure.com/, login and click on New registration button.




On Register an application form, setup an app name and copy your website URL into the Redirect URL field and click on the Register button.




Then you're almost done, from here you have an Application ID (Client ID), only the password is missing. On the left menu, go to Certificates & secrets, then click on the New client secret button to create one. After that, fill the Description and set the Expires for it.




A password (Client Secret) is generated right away after pressing on Add button, then remember to make a copy.




2. Login to OneDrive

Then go back in Joomla admin and click on the menu Dropfiles > Options > Cloud connection tab > OneDrive settings section. Paste your

  • Client ID
  • Client Secret




Then Save the configuration and click on the Connect button.




You'll have to validate the access authorization for app access, just click Yes.




Connection should be a success! ☺ Then you can add files, folders and sub folders in OneDrive and in Dropfiles, everything will be synchronized!



3. How it works? What can I do with OneDrive?

How it works? 

Dropfiles will generate a root folder on your OneDrive with the site name. OneDrive can sync folders/subfolders and files on your Dropfiles interface and the same is possible on the other way (from Dropfiles to OneDrive).



What are the sync directions?

It works in both directions! You can add a file from OneDrive and see it in Dropfiles or add a file in Dropfiles and see it in OneDrive. It also means you can manage Dropfiles files from your desktop using OneDrive sync software. That’s crazy! Yes we know ☺



Note: Dropfiles does not support Business account.
